Traveling between Fortaleza, Barcelona and southern Italy, labor markets and marriages, gender studies and international migrations, political economy and human agency, Adriana Piscitelli offers us an excellent long-term multi-sited ethnography that relates gender and sexuality, international migrations, labor market and national identity in an unequal world. Her book problematizes debates and deconstructs megaconcepts – including human trafficking and prostitution – sensitively revealing to us how its protagonists reframe their social capital and stereotypes of Brazilianness in specific contexts, in favor of their dreams and family strategies.
